A TeleMonitoring, TeleRehabilitation and TeleSupport System
- October 2020
Telbios, part of the “ab medica” Group, is pushing forward with its work in home telerehabilitation, now focusing on a mechanism of action linked to the presence of Covid-19.
TeleMonitoring, TeleRehabilitation and TeleSupport are three interlinked needs that gave rise to T-Cube and an ecosystem that is both multidisciplinary and of diagnostic and therapeutic continuity. T-Cube is a project to support elderly and fragile people suffering from heart, lung or neurological diseases, who may or not have tested positive for Covid-19. The underlying purpose is to ensure their safety and that of medical operators under the current social distancing rules, while providing greater support and engagement with the patient in treatment.
The situation dictated by the Covid-19 pandemic has placed chronically ill or fragile people in greater focus, for two reasons in particular. There is the high risk of them developing particularly aggressive forms of illness, with a critical or fatal outcome, if they are infected by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The second risk is that their usual treatment may suddenly be interrupted.
The role of the Foundation
Fondazione Politecnico di Milano has a consultancy role in the project
T-Cube is carried out within the context of “Measure to support collaborations to identify therapies and diagnostic systems, protection and analyses to contrast the Coronavirus emergency and other future viral emergencies (Action I.1.b.1.3 Axis 1 ERDF ROP 2014-2020)”.
The purpose of the project is to adapt and validate a telemedicine system in three modules (TeleMonitoring -TM, TeleRehabilitation -TR and TeleSupport – TS), that can provide integrated care in the management of fragile people, in a perspective of multidisciplinarity and diagnostic and therapeutic continuity, ensuring the safety of users and medical operators under the current social distancing rules, while providing greater support and engagement with the patient being treated.
